After a disappointing non-placement in Bb. Pilipinas 2013, Mercegrace Raquel seemed headed back to her normal life. But since Team JDV’s John de la Vega is the go-to-guy in the Philippines of the organizers of Miss Humanity International, she found herself in the spotlight again. While the Barbados-based competition lacks the prestige and huge following of other international beauty pageants, it remains solidly on track going into its 3rd edition.
And so, Mercegrace will soon follow the footsteps of Czarina Gatbonton (2011) and Ayelee Marie Dasalla (2012) who represented the country in the same and wound up in the Top 5. She could be looking at finally nailing the crown, given MHI’s propensity for dark, exotic beauties.
Once all her traveling documents and wardrobe are in order, she should still have enough time to condition herself for the competition’s crucial dates – July 7-15, 2013.
Bridgetown, watch out for Mercegrace! 🙂
